In an interview with journalists on Tuesday in Enugu, Odo, said, “The strike is still on.  It will go on unless they pay the minimum wage to the primary school teachers and the local government workers.”

“Primary school teachers and council workers in all the 17 local government areas have been on strike for about three weeks now because they were yet to receive their N30,000 national minimum wage two years after other civil servants in the state started earning the enhanced salary.”
